The Younger Wife
The Younger Wife | Sally Hepworth
Stephen Aston is getting married again. The only problem is, he's still married to his first wife. She is in a care facility for dementia, but he'll take care of that easily by divorcing her - even if his adult daughters protest. Tully and Rachel Aston look upon Heather as nothing but an interloper. Heather is the same age as Rachel and even younger than Tully. Clearly she's a golddigger and after their father's money. However, Heather has secrets that she's keeping close, and reasons of her own for wanting to marry Stephen. With their mother unable to speak for herself, Tully and Rachel are determined to get to the truth about their family's secrets, the new wife closing in, and who their father really is. But will getting to the truth unleash the most dangerous impulses . . . in all of them? **************************************************** Praise for Sally Hepworth: 'Women's fiction at its finest' LIANE MORIARTY 'Clever, chilling and beautifully crafted' ADELE PARKS 'The characters are so beautifully drawn and it was an emotional read, but I couldn't put it down' HEIDI PARKS 'Sally demonstrates that you don't need outlandish situations and monstrous characters to write a thoroughly engrossing, suspenseful thriller, and her writing feels so effortless' EMMA CURTIS 'It's not often that such a gripping page-turner can be so moving' SARAH NAUGHTON 'Cleverly plotted and completely compelling' NICOLA MORIARTY

The first half read more contemporary than suspense. When the suspense was added, it was pretty good, but the ending was rushed to the point of being nonsensical.

Steven‘s wife has dementia and is in a care home, but he has found love again with Heather, an interior designer who is the same age as his adult daughters. Tully and Rachel are not pleased their dad is divorcing mum to be with Heather. But does Steven have an even darker side?

Megabooks @Cinfhen yeah, it was just really bizarre…left me with some questions not in a good way. 3d

This was a surprisingly good thriller. I think it might be my favorite Hepworth so far! The audiobook narrator(s) were amazing. Trigger warning in spoiler in comments. Happy reading! #Libby #audiobook

This one was good…not great but good. I disliked the dad - the man marrying a much younger woman after divorcing his wife with Alzheimer‘s- from the very beginning but found the issues surrounding the various women intriguing. Did not like the ending and found the resolution pretty shitty (if you‘ve read it you‘ll know what I‘m talking about). But overall I enjoyed the short chapters and thought the narrator was good. And beautiful cover! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is a tough one for me. I really like Sally Hepworth & I enjoyed this novel... Until I got to the end. The ending had me wanting to throw the book. Otherwise, classic Hepworth with well-developed, relatable characters & engrossing family drama. I enjoy the suspense & humor she brings to her books. ⭐⭐⭐💫 Stars because the ending was so upsetting.

Hepworth has definitely become an auto-read author for me. Here, she sets up a family situation that seems quite solid but then slowly starts to reveal that maybe things aren‘t how they look. Really deft writing along the lines of Liane Moriarty. Great read!

Started this last night and barely got a wink of sleep. I love hearing Caroline Lee as one of the narrators, as I love her in all Moriarty books, but this book stands on its own so far! I'm totally enthralled.

I‘ve enjoyed Hepworth‘s novels, so I was excited to dive into her latest! As usual, her characters come to life. The book opens with a wedding that ends in tragedy-& circles to different perspectives to build that day up. Stephen is remarrying- though his two adult daughters don‘t exactly support his decision despite understanding it in the wake of their mother‘s debilitating diagnosis. It‘s easy to keep turning pages in this unsettling read!

I enjoyed this book, but admit I will be puzzling over the ending for a while. This book is about family, marriage, and secrets. There is a lot being said about the book portraying abuse victims as being crazy, but I think that is the point of the book...that some abusers can mess up their victims so much that they in fact do not trust their own judgment about has happened to them. I gave it 4/5 stars.

3 STARS - I've read all of Hepworth's books but this one was just okay. Too much dysfunction and not enough thriller. She continues to be an auto-read author for me and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

I was 100% insulted by this book as a female reader. Women are not magnanimously stupid so please stop writing them as such. Here‘s my chief review point, spoiler be damned: the author portrays not 1 but 2 women who suffer physical abuse who then convince themselves they aren‘t abused, in favor of them being… “drunk” and/or “crazy.” Yup. I really just read that. In 2022. Full review ScrappyMags.com

The Younger Wife was such a page-turner for me, as I desperately wanted to know the truth about Stephen and the members of his family. The events are seen through the eyes of multiple characters, which brings with it many perspectives that ultimately come together so well in the end. I loved the mysteries and questions surrounding this family and the ways in which they overcame many of the challenges they faced.

What a book!!! People are not always who you think they are and it takes a discerning mind to truly know a person in the kind of world we live in.

BTW this is my first time reading @SallyHepworth and I'm blown away by the way she writes.

ScrappyMags I was infuriated at this book and how it portrayed domestic abuse. Couldn‘t believe this was even published. 3mo

But like all drugs, Sonny eventually lost his potency. And when he didn‘t provide the hit that he once had, Tully needed to go looking for that rush of adrenaline in the place she‘d always found it.

FULL REVIEW 4/5.

The Ashton family has enough problems, and now their father has a young girlfriend, Heather, who he is going to marry.

What is he doing? Their mother is still living and is in a home for dementia patients?

The book starts out with the wedding and then a scream. What happened?

Lots of twists, secrets, lies, and lots of drama.

This is another engaging, thoughtful read by Sally Hepworth.  4/5

Sally Hepworth brings readers another domestic suspense story filled with lots of family drama and twists and turns throughout the book. This book will keep you glued to the edge of your seat guessing right up until the end. Sally Hepworth has a knack for developing sophisticated characters and plots that unfold sooo beautifully one detail at a time until all the pieces of the story fall into place. A real page turner to be devoured!

Today, Netgalley offered "The Younger Wife" to the first 1,000 people to download it. Of course, I saw the email two hours too late. I'm dying a little inside right now because it would have been nice to read this book immediately. ? Oh, well. I'll just preorder it. Love this author! ?
